According to the Bulacan beauty, the rest of the money given to her is used by them to buy food and clothes for her to use.

She said, “Meron naman pong kakaunting naibibigay sa akin ‘yun po ‘yung pinagsasama-sama na lang namin just so that we can have a little food para lang maitawid ko ‘yung outfits ko. Dumating din sa point na I had to go and find a dress sa mga online selling.”
